Butterflies, Framed

Two butterflies, mounted with metal pins, and framed in a pale wooden box with a whitewash appearance and glass panel. Butterflies are coloured brown and cream (top), and white, metallic/blue and purple (lower). The top butterfly is upside down showing the underside. White adhered label with black printed text beneath the top butterfly reads "Atrophaneura latreilei / kahruba (India)", and lower label reads "Morpho sulkowskyi / (Brazil)". "SYD / L73" is handwritten on an adhered label on the top right side of the frame and covered with selotape. The rear of the frame has hooks and string for hanging. Four metal screws hold the frame together, evident from the top and lower edges of the rear.
